Mohawk Industries won a record seven Dealers’ Choice Awards and was the only flooring manufacturer to receive multiple honors. The company received awards for five products as well as its merchandising for RevWood Plus and the groundbreaking Omnify technology platform.

“We are extremely proud of this accomplishment and appreciate each of the retailers who cast their votes for Mohawk,” said Karen Mendelsohn, Mohawk’s senior VP of marketing. “We view these wins as a tangible validation of our commitment to retailers, especially since winners are selected solely by qualified flooring retailers and ballots are tallied by a third party, making Dealers’ Choice a coveted awards program across the flooring industry.”

Mohawk also won Dealer’s Choice Awards for RevWood Plus merchandising and Omnify, an integrated technology solution that links retailer’s online and physical stores, giving consumers decision simplicity and increasing the likelihood of purchasing from Mohawk Aligned Retailers.

“These wins represent a wide variety of products that showcase our capacity for innovation, style and performance across all product categories,” Mendelsohn said. “From waterproof wood flooring to hypoallergenic soft surface solutions, Mohawk is excited to be at the forefront of the industry, creating products that provide the durability, performance and value consumers require.”
